Testwise SRS Report

A sample report may be viewed at:

https://www.gl-assessment.co.uk/products/suffolk-reading-scale-srs/

under the section titled Suffolk Reading Scale, click on sample report and then select Levels 1–3 or Level 4 as appropriate.

The report for Levels 1 – 3 is in two parts.

Section A

The table shows a comparison of group and national Standard Age Scores (SAS) and the chart shows the average SAS scores for the test with 90% confidence bands indicated by the vertical lines.

Section B

The table shows pupils’ scores with Key Stage 3 indicators listed by first name.

Scores for each pupil are shown as a Standard Age Score, a Stanine, a National Percentile Rank, a Group Rank, a Raw Score and a Reading Age. Indicators of the pupils’ current and end of Key Stage levels in English are also shown. Some of the levels are split into three categories (A, B and C) with A denoting the highest and C the lowest category within a level.

SRS Level 4 for students aged 14 has an additional section (C) which highlights those whose SAS is below 85 and/or whose scores indicate an improvement in reading age by nine months when raw scores are captured at the end of the test and at a point when 80% of the test time has occurred. This information will contribute to evidence required under Section A1 (standardised score for reading below the average range) and Section A2a (increase of nine months in reading age when 25% additional time is given) of the JCQ criteria for up to25% additional time for KS3 students in England without a statement of special needs.

SRS Level 4 report for students aged 15/16 lists SAS as standard, and therefore students whose SAS is below 85 can be identified immediately. This can contribute to evidence needed under Literacy Attainment criteria as set out in JCQ “Access Arrangements and Special Consideration: Regulations & Guidelines Relating to Candidates who are Eligible for Adjustments in Examinations”.
